Madagascar Pygmy Kingfisher ACEO in acrylics

I couldn't resist painting this  little kingfisher. I love it when a painting all just seems to come together like this one did.   I am really pleased with the final result.  As the name implies these birds are found in Madagascar and measure around 13cm in length.

Madagascar Pygmy Kingfisher measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Frank Vassen for the reference photo.
